Heath Ledger to play "The Joker" in the next "Batman" movie?
LEDGER TO PLAY THE JOKER

Last updated: Monday, July 24, 2006

Heath Ledger is set to play The Joker in the ''Batman Begins'' sequel.

The Australian actor was apparently officially offered the much sought after role on Wednesday (July 18, 2006).

Website LatinoReview.com revealed the news, their site reads: "We were first to tell the world that Brandon Routh was going to be the new Superman."

"Now here we are at it again as we just got word from a very trusted source that the offer was officially made to Heath Ledger to star as The Joker in the 'Batman Begins' sequel!"

The "Brokeback Mountain" star is the latest in a long line of respected actors to be linked to the role.

Robin Williams was reportedly desperate to land the part, British actor Paul Bettany was said to be in "talks," and "Reservoir Dogs" star Steve Buscemi was also rumored to be on the shortlist.

The film is due to be released in 2008 and the Joker - played by Jack Nicholson in the original "Batman" movie in 1989 - will feature as the main villain.

Screenwriter David Goyer revealed: "Batman will enlist the aid of Police Commissioner Gordon and Harvey Dent in bringing down the Joker... but not killing him."

"In the third movie, the Joker would go on trial scarring Dent in the process."

If Ledger accepts the part, he will join Christian Bale - who plays the Caped Crusader - Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman, who are all reprising their roles.

I can see it.....Heath has that wide, toothy smile that one needs to play Joker. Although, I agree with Serena...no one can play Joker better than Jack!

Joker's my favorite Batman villian, of course you can't kill him!

You are so right. Jack Nicholson was the best joker there could have been. It will be pretty hard to fill his clown shoes!

I disagree. I love Jack's wild personality, but he looks all wrong. He is old, short and overweight. I'm a huge fan of comics like Arkham Asylum, and I think somebody like Crispin Glover would pull off the part quite well, or a very intelligent unknown. Joker has to be very intelligent.

Just saw this..
He should not play the joker - it should be Paul Bettany, although I would settle for Steve Buscemi
